About Small's

The Smalls are no strangers to Hampton Boulevard. Restaurant owner John Small III spent the early half of his life at Small’s Home Center, a hardware store started by his grandfather at 43rd Street and Hampton Boulevard in 1919. John’s father, John Small Jr., carried on that business, with his son by his side until 1983 when John III went into the commercial real estate business.

The hardware center was a staple on Hampton Boulevard for nearly 70 years. The Smalls treated all their customers the same, whether they were spending a penny or $50. John Jr. used to give out chewing gum to his young customers, much to the chagrin of their mothers. He knew people by their first name. He contributed to every facet to the community, from the family owned business to his service with the Kiwanis Club of Norfolk (for which his father was a charter member).


"Welcome to Small's Smokehouse + Oyster Bar!" Small's Smokehouse + Oyster Bar is a place where freshly caught seafood from Virginia’s Eastern Shore,
